strong for what has happened. i want you to know the outpouring of emotion from across this country has been overwhelming. from presidential candidates to citizens who just traveled through the state, to any person in any walk of life. every single person has had to put their feet in the shoes of one of those nine families today. and they all know what that felt like. so with that, where do we go from here? we allow ourselves to grieve. we allow ourselves to pray. we allow ourselves to question why this happened and then allow ourselves to heal. so, the healing process will start. we are so thankful to chief mullen and his team and law enforcement, with fbi, with everybody that came together. that refused to allow this to happen. i've never seen when we were

going through the command center such compassion and personal willingness to make sure they brought this person home. we can now tell our children that person is in custody and we can now not only lift up our law enforcement community who hasn't slept since this happened but thank them and give them the credit they deserve and the courage they deserve. i want to remind everybody, south carolina has stepped up today in a way that continues to make me proud. we are seeing love. we're seeing prayers. we're seeing support. we're seeing humility. for that i want to tell you that i'm thankful. we will continue to be on standby for all of the people all of the leaders you see behind us are willing to do anything and everything for the families in need and for the church in need. for that i will tell you it is a very very sad day in south carolina but it is a day we will get through. it is a day we will remember and
